  • The Gig Harbor Young Professionals group is a way for individuals to network, socialize, and create a difference with peers from the age of 21-40. GHYP meets monthly for a networking event or a community involvement activity. 

    GHYP membership is open to all Chamber members. If you're not a Chamber member but are interested in being a GHYP member, you can pay dues or join the Chamber. GHYP Dues for the year are $100. Chamber dues start at $325 and give you access to the GHYP and everything else the Chamber offers.

    Fill out an application today and send it to info@gigharborchamber.com or apply online. Employees of current Chamber members don't need to fill out an application they are welcome to attend.

  • Generally, meetings are on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 5:00 p.m.- 7:00 p.m. In addition, we occasionally schedule other fun activities. 

    Check the Facebook page and Instagram page for more details, or get on the email list to be reminded. 

    If you are looking to connect with other professionals of similar age and career stages AND you like to have fun, join us for one of our upcoming luncheons. We'd love to connect with you. You can find the event registration on the second Tuesday of each month on the events calendar.  We also enjoy doing things together in the community and many lifelong friendships got their start with this group.

    Thank you to our 2024 Sponsor: Waste Connections!
